The Qwik-Ty Rope Riding Bridle and Reins
Functionality within a bitless bridle is just as important as good hands.  A bitless bridle that is simple, clear, precise, and repeatable produces trust within a horse.   I like my horses to respond with softness to the sightest hint of rein pressure.  The Qwik-Ty Rope Riding Bridle is what I designed for the type of response I look for within Empathic Horsemanship.  

Unlike regular rope halters, the Qwik-Ty Rope Riding Bridle can be easily adjusted for correct fit.  It has a special Cheek Bar Knot that allows the reins to be attached in the correct place.  It also creates a bar effect to reinforce rein cues.  

The Qwik-Ty Rope Riding Bridle creates the precision, and repeatability of pressure points that a horse can consistently rely on.  It's simple and easy to use.  

My Qwik-Ty Rope Reins uses a special combination of rope material to translate feel from hands to horse better than the typical rope reins most riders are familiar with.

The Gaucho Saddle

Saddling is important to Empathic Horsemanship when it comes to promoting a  sensitive, connected, feel between horse and rider.  A well fitting,  balanced, comfortable saddle for both human and horse is essential. Saddles that do not work with a horse and rider, in fit and balance, will block sensitivity, and increase the level of effort for both.

When I began riding the Gaucho Saddle I noticed a sharp increase in willing responsiveness within my horses.  I discovered new sensations, and increased awareness in familiar ones.  The Gaucho Saddle allows the horse the freedom to move naturally while carrying a rider in a secure, balanced seat.   Its an amazing riding experience that propogates the energy contained within feel and allows the low level sensitive nuances of thought-to-body communication so desired by human and horse.
